I'm the Project Lead at the Disruption Department, an organization that provides resources and space for students to learn, to create, and to share what they learn and create. Part of this includes focusing on building software.
STLRuby is open to all. You don't even have to be a developer. If you have an intrest in Ruby then this is the place to be. We have beginners to experts. We even have the occasional designer who tries to tell us how awesome php is. We don't even all love Ruby all the time.
So beginner, expert, designer, or Ruby hater, we will still welcome you for a beer and some code talk. Psst, we may even talk about design a little.
